Stop the presses folk. Hold the phones. The Age has reported that, every now and then, during exercise, people can injure themselves.
In this shock report, The Age's Louisa Hearn claimed that Doctors are now on "Kinect Xbox Injury Alert".
Collisions, sprains, ruptured ligaments and even broken bones now seem as likely to occur in the home as on the sports field for the 8 million people who have bought the new Kinect Xbox 360 controller since its release late last year.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, for the safety of its loyal readers, Kotaku would like to also issue a 'Crossing the Street Injury Alert', and a 'Walking Up A Particularly Steep Hill Injury Alert'. Readers - please don't walk up a steep hill, or cross the road without first consulting a qualified exercise physiologist. And for the love of all that is holy, don't think about walking up the stairs.
Hundreds of people every year get severe injuries from crossing the street, walking up particularly steep hills, and climbing stairs. We'd like to ask you be careful, and clear all debris from the stairs, streets and hills before attempting any of these dangerous exercises, as it is possible to roll on your ankle, tear ligaments, and even break your ankle.
"I needed the toilet really badly," claimed Angela, "so I ran up the stairs really quickly. On the last step I rolled on my ankle, and it really hurt. But once my Mum put some ice on it, it was alright."
Let this horror story be a lesson to each and every one of you - stairs, roads and hills are incredibly dangerous. Don't climb or walk without the express permission of suitable experts.
"Walking across the road is a big deal," claimed Dr White. "Make sure you bend your knees while walking, and for the love of God walk in a straight line. For your safety and others. If you change direction quickly, you may be on the receiving end of a sore foot or, worse, a blister."
Stay safe everyone.
